27-year-old abandoned Banjo may be oldest living rescue cat

On September 4,  a stray, senior kitty named Banjo was found according to the RSPCA Southall Cattery in West London. Someone abandoned  him, however his microchip dating from 1991 tracing back to Haooddesdon, Hertfordshire reveals his age as perhaps the oldest living rescue cat.banjo-the-cat-2

According to The Sun, Banjo was microchipped when he was two years of age – doing the math, this cat would be 125 in human years or 27 years – just a number mind you! Except for a few teeth missing, the shelter stated Banjois in good health.

Beverly Leavy, the manager of the RSPCA Southall Cattery described him:

“He is such a charming sweet old man; he is eating well and enjoying life in the cattery. He takes everything in his stride and has won all of us over. It’s amazing to think he was born decades ago – we think he must be the oldest rescue cat in the county.”

The organization contacted Banjo’s listed owners, but no one ever responded, but no worries- Banjo already has a waiting line of new homes being offered. And although he really does look to be a much younger cat, his microchip tells all. While no one knows why he was abandoned at this age, his new home promises to be quiet, comfortable and filled with lots of love. Surely, how many of Banjo’s nine lives has he used?

To help this fine organization, donations can be made here.
